Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company announced the iRCX interoperable electronic design automation (EDA) data format for TSMC 65nm and 40nm processes. iRCX format unifies interconnect modeling data delivery, ensures data integrity and interpretation. EDA tools which support iRCX format will be able to receive accurate interconnect modeling data from the iRCX files developed and supported by TSMC. Interconnect related EDA applications, including place and route, RC extraction, electromigration analysis, power integrity analysis, and electromagnetic simulation are to benefit from iRCX.
